It’s time to start planning your summer Tahoe trip, but instead of booking a run-of-the-mill hotel room, why not opt for a tiny house, tipi or comfy yurt? These fun and unusual Airbnb rentals come with luxe amenities including trailside access to the Pacific Crest Trail, waterfront access to Carnelian Bay, and even your own swimming pool. Happy camping!
Yurts are traditionally found on the vast steppes of Mongolia. But perched high above the Pacific Ocean, in California's own Big Sur, the quirky Treebones Resort offers all-yurt accommodations—though the Mongols wouldn't recognize the polished pine floors, queen-sized beds, and cozy quilts to keep you warm. All yurts feature wooden decks from which you can watch the water churn below. And the large communal hot tub overlooking the ocean is a nice way to warm your bones while watching the sun sink below the horizon. If you're inspired to explore, Treebones' homemade guidebook offers detailed information on nearby hikes and beach walks. One favorite local pastime is jade-hunting along Jade Cove.
